I spent a few hours yesterday spreading newspapers then leaves which I raked up from all around the nursing home. About 7 wheelbarrows full. It looked so nice and even and I though I was on to something. Lot of work but the weather was nice and I finished a quarter of the plot.
Well... Today I walked past early in the morning and everything was gone. Wind had blown all the leaves away and the newspapers were hanging on the fence. Every inch was gone. The weather said it was windy so my mistake. I just laughed. I mean, what can you do?
I need to go over this afternoon and find all the newspaper sheets and try something else. I thought the ground was wet enough to stick but I was wrong. Oh well. Learned a lesson. Don't spread leaves on a windy day.
